    A story about Georgia State's continuous involvement in revitalizing and developing property in downtown Atlanta over the past 16 years. Georgia State and a prominent Atlanta development team recently submitted a proposal to acquire Turner Field and the parking lots between it and downtown for a $300 million mixed-use development. Becker said the timing was right for the project by highlighting other development projects such as the future $1.3 billion Falcons stadium and the nearly complete National Center for Civil and Human Rights. "A city that once was at a standstill," Becker said, "now has its legs back underneath it. I see a kind of economic activity and vitality that says Atlanta is coming back strong."
